CMLL (SUN) 10/28/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara [El Occidental (5), El Occidental (6)]
5) Puma King & Tiger DQ Guerrero Maya Jr. & Rey Cometa
Rudos took the first, tecnicos took the second. In the third, Tiger beat Maya, Cometa beat Tiger, and Puma faked a foul to get the win.
6) Dragón Rojo Jr. b Hijo del Fantasma [NWA MIDDLE]
Rojo took 1/3, the last with a small package, to keep his title.

Semimain sets up a singles match next week.

IWRG (SUN) 10/28/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Black Terry Jr. (flickr), The Gladiatores]
1) Epidemia & Matrix Jr. b Araña de Plata & Seiya
straight falls. Seiya’s debut here.
2) Cristal & La Sádica b Amazona & Ludark Shaitan
Cristal’s debut here, and Ludark’s first match since 2010.
3) Bestia 666, Oficial 911, Oficial Fierro b el Ángel, Relampago, Trauma II
Ruods took 1/3 where Angel shockingly turned on Trauma II. Angel explained he was tired of the Traumas and would be going rudo to oppose them.
4) Factor, Rayan, Spartan b Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Hijo de Pirata Morgan
Alan Extreme replaced Zumbido. Factor and Pirata feuded. Comando Elite took 1/3, Factor submitted Pirata. Money thrown in the ring.
5) Negro Navarro & Trauma I b Cien Caras Jr. & Hijo de Máscara Año 2000 [IWRG IC TAG]
Navarros came in as champions. Dinamitas went after Trauma I’s right knee, so much so that they were DQed in the first fall for excessive violence. The doctor told Trauma I he probably should sit the rest of this one out, but Trauma I continued. Dinamitas beat him in fall two, but Negro first submitted Mascara and then Cien to keep the titles in straight falls.

Both the Traumas are hurt going into the cage match, and Hijo de Pirata Morgan is not in good shape either. Angel’s random rudo turn does not bode well for his short term future…

There are rumors about Dr. Wagner Jr. and Extreme Tiger leaving AAA. I’m not sure where the Tiger one exactly comes from (these two tweets seem are the first I’ve seen it mentioned, though most of this type of stuff usually is passed around Facebook first.) Tiger leaving AAA would be very nonsensical. He has been stuck in the same place forever and would understandably be wanting a bigger opportunities, but there are really no big ones on the indies right nowThere’s definitely not a lot to the Wagner one. It’s a Luchas 2000 interview with Karlo Colin (always an iffy sign) where he just says he’s open to all possibilities, including leaving AAA.

On his MLW Radio podcast, Konnan mentioned Teddy Hart is suspended for his recent no-show in Monterrey. Konnan also said Teddy will have a documentary crew following him in AAA some point soon.

Rey Escorpion was honored at the CMLL show in Sonora.


CMLL (SUN) 11/04/2012 Arena Coliseo

5) Blue Panther, Hijo del Fantasma, Máscara Dorada vs Kráneo, Pólvora, Psicosisse
6) Diamante Azul, La Sombra, Shocker vs Dragón Rojo Jr., Tama Tonga, Volador Jr.

Another show with just random matches that could be on ay show.

Misterioso has no luck with Diamante Azul in a lightning match, will try the lesser version this time.

CMLL (SUN) 11/04/2012 Arena Coliseo Guadalajara
1) Brillante & Javier Cruz vs Demonio Rojo & Relampago Azul

3) Leo vs In Memoriam [lightning]
4) Rey Cometa vs Puma King
5) Atlantis, Rush, Smaker vs Euforia, Ráfaga, Terrible

Cometa vs Puma is a good match. Rafaga and Smaker get to be part of the main event with everyone else moving down.

Angel keeps his title, Pirata/Navarros, Oro

IWRG (THU) 10/25/2012 Arena Naucalpan [Estrellas del Ring]
1) Matrix Jr. & Star Boy Jr. b Araña de Plata & Astro Rey Jr.
One fall match, which appears to be the rule on Thursdays for the last many weeks. Plata’s first main show match here in a year.
2) Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Yack b Cerebro Negro, La Cobra, Relampago
Alan Extreme replaced Star Boy. Carta Brava beat Relampago for the win.
3) Factor, Rayan, Spartan DQ Oficial 911, Oficial Fierro, Tóxico DF
Toxico replaced AK47. Factor got away with a foul on 911 in the first, the faked a foul in the second for the straight fall win.
4) el Ángel b Oficial AK47 [IWRG IC MIDDLE]
Angel is champion. Heddi Karaoui was scheduled to get the match, but pulled after suffering a concussion on Sunday. The Estadio de Mexico commission appointed AK-47 as challenger. Angel took the first with a submission, AK47 pinned Angel in the second. 911, AK47’s second, interfered in the third fall and was ejected. This distracted AK47, and Angel won with a spanish fly. First defense.
5) Negro Navarro, Trauma I, Trauma II b Barba Roja, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Pirata Morgan
Navarros took 2/3, Trauma I submitting Hijo de Pirata. Those two threatened each other about next week’s cage match.

This afternoon was the annual mass at Arena Coliseo to honor Oro and others deceased luchadors. Tiger, who would’ve been 6 when Oro died, says he was a huge fan of Oro when at that age. He had Oro posters and dolls, and when people at school would ask him who his father is, he would tell them Oro.

Today’s Arena Mexico match is another Guerreros vs ex-Guerreros rematch. Hopefully Niebla Roja tries the tornillo on someone besides Tama Tonga this time. It’s also Dark Angel’s first match in Arena Mexico in two months.

LuchaWorld has Alfred on En Busca de Un Idolo episode 4.

1) Bengala & Freesbe DQ Camorra & Espanto Jr.
Tecnicos took 2/3. Camorra yanked Bengala’s mask for the DQ.
2) Hijo del Signo, Molotov, Sensei b Artillero, Hooligan, Súper Comando
Hooligan replaced Nosferatu, who hasn’t been seen in 3 weeks. Hijo del Signo replaced Tigre Blanco and worked on the tecnico side, but did not get along with his partners. Tecnicos still took 1/3 for the win.
3) Dalis la Caribeña, Lady Afrodita, Marcela b La Comandante, La Seductora, Lady Apache
Marcela replaced Luna Magica. Rudas took 2/3 in a poor match.
4) Averno b Guerrero Maya Jr. [lightning]
Averno won in 8 minutes with a super Devil’s Wings.
5) Namajague, Shigeo Okumura, Taichi b Diamante, Hijo del Fantasma, Stuka Jr.
Japan took 1/3. Taichi pinned Fantasma with his version of the Gedo clutch. Fantasma laid on the mat for a while like he was knocked out by the cradle.
6) Rey Bucanero, Tiger, Volador Jr. b Blue Panther, La Máscara, Valiente
Rudos took 1/3. Volador pinned Mascara clean with the superkick and backcracker combo. Volador attempted to challenge Mascara for a title match on the microphone, but the microphone failed (live, fine on the stream.) The idea was still communicated.

Volador/Mascara (#8?) seems like the main event for 10/14, with Fantasy vs Mercurio as the fourth match.

Tons of problems with the feed this week.

IWRG (SUN) 09/30/2012 Arena Naucalpan [me]

Temerarios took 1/3

straight falls. Brava II/Rayan/Spartan DQed for excessive violence in 1st, Oficials pin Comandos in second. Carta Bravas destroyed each other’s masks. Carta Brava Jr. IWRG was wrestling with an Electroshock-style mask by the end of the match. Mask match challenges followed the match, as did Carta Brava IWRG randomlly challenged for the lightweight title.
4) Comando Negro, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr., Oficial AK47 b Dr. Cerebro, el Ángel, Hijo de LA Park
Rudos took 1/3. Comando Negro was eliminated in the third fall, but used a ref distracted to pull Angel’s mask and set him up for Wagner’s pin. Angel rolled around on the floor with Wagner after the match, and had to be held back from coming after Comando Negro.
5) Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Sagrada, Veneno DQ Cien Caras Jr., Factor, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000
16:27 (21:33 including breaks), falls 3:17, 3:50, 9:20. Tecnicos took 2/3. Cien rouled Sagrada and pulled off his mask for the DQ. mask match challenges between Pirata and Factor and Cien and Sagrada.

IWRG’s Castle of Terror should be coming up in 4 or 5 weeks, and they’re teasing a lot of mask feuds. That all may be a concidence.

By the way, this GIF includes everything you ever need to know about IWRG. It’s all there.

No detailed results from AAA’s TV taping yet. The Inferno Rockers match was said to be very good, but not even a picture of the new Rocker. Texano again challenged Mesias for a title match.

Titan defeated Euforia by DQ in Guadalajara. It was said to be good from start to finish. Euforia won the first wtih a powerbomb, Titan snuck in a move in the second, Euforia headbutt fouled him in the third. That seems like it’s going to happen to Eufoira a lot.

Haven’t seen anything on the Legend show in Arena Lopes Mateos. This was a busy weekend, and next week is about the same with Heroes Inmortales. We should wait until next Sunday’s lineup comes out for this, but I’m looking for thoughts about when the chat should run (and if people are interested in a chat.) I don’t know that we’ll get any more AAA results then the scattered and incomplete stuff they’ve posted from the last few TV tapings, and there probably won’t be as many other people live tweeting results like for TripleMania. I’m not sure if a chat going from 5 to whenever AAA gets done (11?) is something people are looking forward to; two weeks of doing that schedule and I’m already tired of that schedule! On the other hand, a lot of people who would comment in a chat are usually twittering during the CMLL show anyway, so maybe you ight as well have a chat too.

CMLL posted the Mercurio/Fantasy contract signing video from this week’s CMLL show.

LuchaWorld has KrisZ’s news update.

SuperLuchas #492 has Canek vs Wagner and interview with Atlantis. A lot of times, it’s the interviewer leading the luchador into making those kind of comments, but Atlantis himself brings up possible retirement unprompted. He says he doesn’t have a when or where in mind but knows it’s coming. It’s very interesting.

It will be sad when Atlatnis gets vetoed for talking to SuperLuchas! (Half kidding?) SuperLuchas got to talk to Atlantis because he was working the FULL show last weekend. That’s suposed to air on AYM Sports some time soon.


Lucha Libre in Japan

09/30 Stardom:
Natsuki*Taiyo b Dark Angel [5Star GP]
in true CMLL in Japan form, Dark Angel failed to advance to the final of her tournament
Io Shirai [O] & Dark Angel b Hiroyo Matsumoto & Kairi Hojo [X]

Dark Angel should be available to be booked in Mexico soon…


IWRG (THU) 10/04/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) Perseus & Vera Miss vs Exorcista Jr. & La Hiedra
2) Centvrión & Saruman vs Imposible & Infierno Kid Jr.
3) Devil Rocker, Machine Rocker, Soul Rocker vs Alan Extreme, Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro
4) Monster Clown, Murder Clown, Negro Navarro vs Factor, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Oficial AK47
5) Cien Caras Jr. vs Psycho Clown [IWRG IC HEAVY]
Cien Caras is the champ

Title change is not out of the question.

Tercera could be very good.

Perseus is Sangre Chicana’s son, who’s advanced in QPPLC last year and this. La Hiedra is also from northern Mexico. Exorcista Jr. is a QPPLC from Veracruz last year, and he was also in the Veracruz locals match that turned up on AAA TV before recently starting to appear in Mexico City. Probably not a concidence they all happen to be around at the same time. No idea on Vera Miss.

IWRG (SUN) 10/07/2012 Arena Naucalpan
1) La Parkita & Voladorcito vs Bracito De Plata & Mr. Aguilita
2) Centvrión, Freelance, Gipsy vs Alan Extreme, Imposible, Sádica
3) Carta Brava, Dinamic Black, Golden Magic vs Carta Brava Jr., Comando Negro, Violencia Jr.
4) Cerebro Negro, Dr. Cerebro, Tony Rivera vs Eterno, Oficial 911, Zumbido
5) el Ángel, Hijo de Pirata Morgan, Máscara Sagrada, Pirata Morgan, Veneno vs Cien Caras Jr., Factor, Heddi Karaoui, Hijo de Máscara Año 2000, Hijo del Dr. Wagner Jr.

Ten enterances! Main event may not start until 10.

Zumbido and Tony Rivera return, continue to exist. They are as random as the minis.

Sadica is a woman, so Gipsy probably is. IWRG really hasn’t done mixed tag without AAA involement, but this probably would work out better than six random indy women just because of the other four guys involved.
